Common questions about growing Pyrus

1. How tall do Pyrus trees grow?

The height of Pyrus trees varies depending on the species and cultivar. Some Pyrus trees can grow up to 50 feet (15 meters) tall, while others may only reach 10 feet (3 meters) in height.

Here are some examples of different Pyrus species and their typical height ranges:

2. Is Pyrus Chanticleer fast growing?

Yes, Pyrus calleryana 'Chanticleer' is considered a fast-growing ornamental pear tree. It can grow up to 13 to 24 inches (33 to 61 cm) per year, reaching a mature height of 20 to 30 feet (6 to 9 m) in about 20 years. However, growth rates can vary depending on the planting site, soil conditions, and climate.

Pyrus calleryana 'Chanticleer' is a popular choice for landscaping and hedging due to its rapid growth rate, attractive pyramid-shaped form, and colorful autumn foliage that turns a vibrant red. It is also relatively low-maintenance and can tolerate a variety of soil conditions and sun exposure.

3. Is Pyrus an evergreen?

The genus Pyrus includes both evergreen and deciduous species. Some of the most well-known evergreen Pyrus species include:

In contrast, some Pyrus species are deciduous, meaning that they lose their leaves in the fall. Examples of deciduous Pyrus species include:

So, whether or not a Pyrus tree is evergreen or deciduous depends on the specific species or cultivar.

4. What is the best ornamental pear for screening?

There are many ornamental pear trees that can be used for screening, but some of the best include:

5. What is the fastest growing ornamental pear tree?

The fastest-growing ornamental pear tree is the Bradford pear (Pyrus calleryana ‘Bradford’). It can grow up to 60 cm per year, reaching a mature height of 6 to 9 m. However, its rapid growth rate can also make it susceptible to structural weaknesses and breakage, especially in severe weather conditions.

Here are some other fast-growing ornamental pear trees:

6. Can I plant a pear tree close to my house?

Planting a pear tree too close to your house can pose several risks:

  1. Root damage: Pear trees have extensive root systems that can grow several feet deep and spread out beyond the canopy of the tree. Planting the tree too close to your house can cause the roots to invade the foundation or sewer lines, leading to cracks, leaks, and other structural damage.
  2. Foundation settlement: The weight of a mature pear tree and its expansive root system can put excessive pressure on the soil near your foundation, potentially causing it to settle or heave. This can lead to cracks in walls, uneven floors, and other structural issues.
  3. Limb damage: As the pear tree grows, its branches can extend close to your house, increasing the risk of damage during storms or high winds. Branches rubbing against the house can cause scratches or damage to siding, gutters, or roofing materials.
  4. Leaf and fruit accumulation: Fallen leaves and fruit from the pear tree can accumulate near your house, creating a messy and potentially hazardous situation. The decaying organic matter can attract pests like insects and rodents, and it can also clog gutters and drains.
  5. Shading issues: A large pear tree planted close to your house can cast significant shade, potentially blocking sunlight from reaching windows and reducing the amount of natural light in your home. This can affect indoor lighting, plant growth, and the overall ambiance of your living space.

To avoid these risks, it is recommended to plant pear trees at least 5 to 7 metres away from your house.
